I just finished your wonderful book. Initially, I was thinking it would be a great wedding gift for new couples. As I got further into it, I realized how helpful it is for all couples. I’ve been in a committed relationship for more than 30 years, 31 years married to the man I still consider to be my boyfriend. Sometimes life’s to-do lists, dramas and traumas get in the way of being lovingly connected. Your book will guide couples back to loving connected presence, a place that feels like true refuge. I look forward to using it to make us even happier, and I whole heartedly recommend it to all couples! Setting an intention to pay attention to your beloved keeps the love alive!
